Recipe: Lavender Frosé

Easy Lavender Frosé Recipe

Hot summer days were made for sippin’ rosé poolside so why not upgrade your rosé to a cool(er) Lavender Frosé.  Rosé is perfectly delicious and refreshing right out of the bottle, but it reaches new heights as frosé. For this recipe, we put a twist on the typical brut rosé with our homemade lavender simple syrup. When selecting your wine, choose a brut rosé that’s light in color—a lighter pink usually indicates a wine that is less sticky sweet—and, of course, a beautiful bottle is a must for summertime entertaining.

Lavender Frosé Recipe

Serves: 3

Ingredients
  • 1 bottle rosé, 750 mL (vegan, if that is your preference!)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 stems lavender
  • 2.5 small lemons, squeezed
Steps
  1. Pour rosé into ice cube trays and freeze for 8 hours or overnight. NOTE: This will not freeze solid.
  2. Combine sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a small pot and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce sugar and water to a simmer and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add lavender and remove from the heat.
  4. Transfer lavender simple syrup to a heat-proof bowl and bring to room temperature. Then place in the refrigerator and chill until cold. Remove and discard lavender. IMPORTANT: Syrup must be entirely cooled before adding to frozen rosé or it will melt!
  5. Add rosé cubes, lemon juice, two tablespoons of the simple syrup (you can save the rest for future cocktails or a berry salad), and 1 cup of ice to a food processor. Pulse until smooth. If you don’t have a food processor, try a high-powered blender instead.
  6. Transfer frosé to a pitcher and freeze up to 60 minutes, or until it has thickened.
  7. Return to food processor and pulse a few times to achieve a frosty consistency.
  8. Pour into individual glasses and garnish with slices of lemon and remaining lavender.
